Not quite sure what is going on here because my IHG Rewards Club status is Spire Ambassador.
Here’s what we wrote about this offer earlier:

Tracks just fine:
IHG has been very active trying to attract corporate travelers despite not having clearly defined elite benefits such as confirmed late checkout, breakfast, or lounge access that competing chains offer.
I have always said that it makes sense to sign up for all these offers out there, as you never know what might work for your account. I, as a Spire Ambassador, was definitely not part of the target group.
